Choosing the Right MERV Option in a Skuttle Filter

Skuttle has two replacement options for filter media, MERV 8 for most homes and MERV 11 where finer filtration of airborne pollutants is needed for health reasons or to improve environmental factors.

High-Capacity, High-Efficiency Air Cleaners come in four popular sizes:
• Model DB-25-20
• Model DB-25-16
• Model DB-20-20
• Model DB-20-16

Under standardized testing, Skuttle’s MERV 8 high-efficiency filter media will capture and hold 84.9% of airborne contaminants and pollutants ranging between 3.0 and 10.0 microns in size. For reference, a single human hair is quite large in comparision, ranging from 20.0 to 40.0 microns in size.

A Minimum of MERV 8 filtration is required to begin to effectively improving air quality. However, for homeowners who insist on the best possible dust control, Skuttle’s MERV 11 high-efficiency filter media stops particles in the 1.0 to 3.0 micron range, making it the premier choice from Skuttle for very high indoor air quality.

Skuttle’s MERV 11 air filter media is the best choice for allergy suffers and can trap particles as fine as milled flour — 1 micron in size. Skuttle High-Efficiency Air Cleaners protect you and your family from harmful contaminants so you can breathe easy in your own home when used in combination with proper humidification and ventilation.

These trapped microscopic particles known irritants to the eyes, nose and throat are common in most houses. According to the American Lung Association these pollutants can also increase the risk of health conditions such as asthma, allergies, chronic bronchitis, lung cancer and other serious respiratory diseases.
The smallest contaminants of a single micron or less make up about 99% of the particles circulating throughout a typical home.
Skuttle duct-mounted air cleaners capture most of these contaminants in a deep-pleated, fluffier filter, which trap a much greater percentage of particulates over a longer period than standard, flat-filter designs. The results are cleaner indoor air, longer filter life, a cleaner HVAC system, longer furnace life, significant cost savings over time and a healthier living environment.
Among the most cost-efficient air cleaners on the market, Skuttle’s High-Efficiency Air Cleaners are designed to provide peak, whole-house air filtration, helping to make your home cleaner, healthier and safer for you and your family.
Skuttle Air Cleaners are duct-mounted, high-capacity air filters designed to provide high-level air filtration in today’s energy-efficient homes. The Air Cleaner is easily installed; filter cartridges slide in and out for quick, easy replacement.

How Skuttle Air Cleaners Work


Air cleaners remove airborne contaminants that enter a home through the return air ductwork of the heating and air conditioning system. Most media-type filters capture household pollutants by surface loading. Skuttle Air Cleaners, however, contain extensive filter material folded into a series of 5-inch pleats. Deep pleating permits higher particle collection over a longer period of time, and better air flow for less wear and tear on the furnace.

• High-efficiency, high-capacity filtration with minimal airflow resistance for longer furnace life.
• Four sizes to fit virtually any furnace installation.

Nominal Vs. Actual Sizes: Finding the Right Air Filter Size

Buying the Correct Size Air Filter- The Most Important Thing to Know 

When you are buying your air filter online most important thing to know is Air Filters have two sizes that you need to understand the Nominal size and the Actual Size. Not understanding these numbers often leads to consumers purchasing a filter that does not fit their Furnace or HVAC system.

Understanding Nominal Filters Size Could Save You Time and Money

Not understanding the Nominal Filter Size is the primary culprit for incorrectly purchased filters.The Nominal Size is the usually the dimensions used to Label the filter. For instance 16x20x1. These dimensions are a rounded value on the filters actual measurements. The actual measurements on this filter may be 15.5x19.5x.75, but that could vary by brand and manufacturer. So in order to make sure you have the correct size filter, especially if you are replacing with a different brand it is important to confirm the actual size on the filter. When purchasing filters on the internet the Nominal size is usually found in the product title.

Actual Filter Size- The Key to Making the Right Replacement Filter Purchase

The actual size as you might have guessed are the actual dimensions of the filter by length, width and thickness. This size is often on the filter right below the Nominal size and is usually labeled as the actual size. When you are buying a filter online the actual size is sometime in the product bullet point or the product description. If your filter does not have actual dimensions on the outside of the filter, you can measure you filter to get the correct dimensions. Some brands have a foam gasket on the outside of the filter, in this case, you will want to make sure you have a compatible actual size and that it also has the foam to ensure a snug fit.

Examples of Nominal and Actual Sizes

 Size  Example 1  Example 2
Nominal Size 20x20x1 16x20x1
Actual Size 19.5x19.5x.75 15.75x19.75x.75

 

 Furnace filters should fit securely but should not have to be forced into position. If you have to force the filter into its slot, then it is probably too big. Forcing an improper filter size in a filter can cause it to buckle, damaging the filter or reducing its ability to function properly. Filters are a smaller than their slot to allow for easy replacement. Some HVAC units may need a filter with dimensions that are unique or uncommon. In these cases, a custom filter needs to be ordered.
